According to the EU-ELV (End of Life Vehicles) directive, the manufacturer is compelled to to take back his vehcle and dispose of it. This is putting the pressure on for the most effective possible rationalisation. In fact Daimler are trying their best to increase the amount of vehicles going through the drying-out-station from eight to thirteen vehicles. At the same time the efficiency of the drying-out should be increased.

That means that e.g., at the same time that coolant is pumped out from the top, the oil or fuel is pumped out from the bottom. Thereby, the pumping time has been doubled. In addition, by tipping the vehicles, another two or three liters of fuel can be gained. From this amount, a re-useable portion can be seperated.

Apart from pumping the liquids out, the braking system e.g., is cleared using high pressure to achieve a higher degree of dryness. After the drying out phase, the whole thing isn't simply sent to the presses, parts which are still usable are dismantled, checked, categorised, stored and then resold with a guarantee.

This is, by the way, not only valid for parts which can be screwed off. Re-useable body parts, e.g., for the old-timer market can thus, also be made available. All in all, the approx. 200 centers for used car disposal at Daimler are, with eight to twenty vehicles under 3,5 tons, being well utilized. 06/13
